That's easy. Look at the connector end (top up) to the left. Cardbus cards
and pcmcia cards differ at that spot. This is the best I can do in ascii:

+---- top
++
| connector
+----- bottom
^ this part is thick on cardbus.
+---- top
++
+----- bottom
^ this part is thin on pcmcia. This is so that cardbus cards won't fit into
a system that doesn't support cardbus. (This is what I assumed, but I don't
believe all manufacturers made the slots that way)
